Hi folks,\n\nI haven't been able to find an answer to this via Google so I though I'd ask\nthe gurus here.\n\nWith my Win7 desktop machine I have (mainly used for gaming) I have three\nfront-loading removable HDD bays. I like this system as it compliments the\nUSB / SATA dock I use with my latop. I can use bare drives rather than\nenclosed externals and when I need to move data from drive-to-drive to\nconsolidate backup categories I can do it in the desktop at full SATA speed.\n\nMy issue is that, while I need to have HDDs showing up in the 'Safely Remove\nHardware' list I'd like to remove my boot drive and dedicated Readyboost\nflash-drive from the list. It's not that W7 will let me stop the boot\ndrive - it won't - however it will let me stop the Readyboost drive. That's\na PITA as, once clicked there's no un-clicking it and it then takes a while\nto copy the correct files to it to optimise boot time and programme\nstart-ups.\n\nSo removing both would not only save accidental removal of the flash-drive\nbut also reduce list-clutter. However I'm yet to find a workable way to do\nit. LOL, 7's certainly not like XP for me - I've learned quite an impressive\namount of UI customisations for XP.\n\nAny help with this would be awesome. I've given up on Googling it. :-/\n\nCheers,\n-\-\n</Shaun>\n\n"Humans will have advanced a long, long, way when religious belief has a\ncozy little classification in the DSM."\nDavid Melville (in r.a.s.f1).
